Abstract It’s well known that computer science education in the U.S. is in decline.From secondary schools up to graduate degree programs, the U.S. has witnesseda steady drop in enrollment in computer science courses. Many factors are responsible—inparticular, the dot-com bust, outsourcing fears, and declines in federal spendingon fundamental CS research. A vicious cycle is in the works, whereby fears aboutjob prospects will drive possible CS candidates into other fields, only to providefuel for the outsourcing fire as the pool of native IT workers shrinks.
